Osprey Ozone 46 Travel Pack

Osprey-Ozone-46-Front

I recently purchased the Osprey Ozone 46 travel pack as an alternative to some other travel packs I had been using, mainly to get a little more space for winter gear.

In the past I had been using a Mountainsmith Parallax camera backpack for most of my travels and it’s worked well. But over the years I’ve started bringing less and less equipment with me and needing more space for clothing and other accessories. The Parallax has about 1880 cu. in. of storage space while the Ozone 46 has 2807 cu. In., so the extra space makes things great for stuffing in things like extra jackets, rain pants, etc. Items that I really had to pin to the outside of the Parallax to get it all to fit.

The Parallax has become my short travel, or day-to-day carry around bag for camera equipment as I still love the padding and customization available with it. And for longer trips, I still use the interior travel case that came with the Parallax for my Nikon D810 camera, I just don’t bring extra lenses or things like that, as I’ve found I don’t use them when doing most of my travel photography.

I’ve taken a look at a couple of the Gamdias keyboard options out there and I have a new one to throw in the mix, the Gamdias Hermes RGB keyboard.

The Hermes RGB keyboard is a step up from the last Gamdias keyboard I reviewed, the Hermes 7-Color keyboard, and it really takes care of the primary thing I took issue with on it. The fact that it wasn’t able to be configured by the Gamdias Hera software (more information on that to follow)…

GAMDIAS sent me the GKC1001 Mechanical Gaming Combo to check out… and let me tell you, I’m really shocked how much I like it, especially at the price point of $70 USD.

The GK1001 combo includes the Hermes Lite Mechanical Keyboard and the Erebos Lite Optical Mouse.

Hermes (/ˈhɜːrmiːz/; Greek: Ἑρμῆς) is an Olympian god in Greek religion and mythology, the son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, and the second youngest of the Olympian gods. – wikipedia.org


Erebus /ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos (Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”),[1] was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos. – wikipedia.org
